(cheerful music) – Hi, I'm Caroline fromthe Khan Academy Kids team, and I'm here today with my friend Sophie.
Thank you all so much for coming back for “Circle Time” with Khan Academy Kids.
Do you all wanna sayhello to my friend Sophie? Hi, Sophie.
– Hi, Caroline.
I'm so excited to behere with you, Caroline, doing “Circle Time”with Khan Academy Kids.
Today I heard we're going to read a book from the Khan Academy Kids library and do some fun activities, are you ready? – We are.
So I'm going to get my book out.
And today we are going toread the book “Sandy Says.
” My friend Sophie is really excited because one of her favoritecharacters is Sandy.
Do you know who Sandy is? Sandy is the yellow characteron the cover of this book, and she is a dingo.
Do you know what a dingo is? – [Sophie] Dingoes, Caroline, are wild dogs from Australia.
They're very friendly wild dogs, and Sandy is one of my favorite Khan Academy Kids characters.
She's really fun and she's really kind and she's really smart.
She loves math and music.
So I can't wait to read”Sandy Says” with you.
– Thanks so much, Sophie.
Let's read about Sandy andher friends Reya and Ollo.
Sandy, Reya, and Ollowere hanging out together.
They had just shared a snackand were ready to have fun.
“Let's play Sandy says, ” oops.
“Let's play Simon says, ” said Sandy.
“Okay, ” Reya said.
“That's a fun game.
” “Can I be Simon first?” Sandy asked.
“Sounds good, ” Ollo said.
What should she tell them to do? “Simon says touch your head, ” said Sandy.
“Simon says shake your hands, “Sandy told her friends.
“This is silly, ” said Ollo.
“But it's too easy, ” Reya said.
“Should we try something harder?” Sandy thought about it.
“Simon says spin aroundsix times, ” Sandy said.
Reya and Ollo spun arounduntil they were dizzy.
“Wow, that was harder, ” Ollo said.
Okay friends, we are gonna tryto spin around three times.
Sophie, do you wanna do it with me? – [Sophie] Yeah, I do, Caroline.
– Okay, let's do it, here we go.
Oh my goodness.
– [Sophie] That was fun.
– I am a little bit dizzy.
Let's see if I can keep on reading.
Sandy said, “Now Simon says sing a song “and hope on one foot.
” “How are we gonna do that?” Reya asked.
“I don't know, ” Ollo shrugged, “but let's give it a shot.
” What kind of songs would you wanna sing? – [Sophie] Oh, let's see, Caroline.
Some of our friends aresaying “Baby Shark, ” “Muffin Man, ” and “The Hello Song.
” – Those are great songs.
I would love to hearyou sing them some time.
(Sophie laughs) Reya and Ollo had to sit for a second.
“I just had a great idea, ” said Sandy.
“Simon says stand on yourhead and touch your toes.
” Reya and Ollo tried.
Sandy gave them a helping hand.
Have you ever tried to stand on your head and touch your toes? – [Sophie] That lookspretty hard, Caroline.
– I'd say that's pretty tricky.
It was no use.
Reya and Ollo and Sandyended up in a heap.
“Can I be Simon now?” asked Reya.
“Of course, ” said Sandy.
“Just don't make Simon sayanything too hard, ” Ollo added.
“Okay, ” Reya said.
“Simon says jump into thesky and touch the sun.
” Sandy and Ollo laughed.
“Just kidding, ” said Reya.
“Put your hands on your hips.
” Reya smiled as they did just that.
“I didn't say Simon says, ” she told them.
Do you think that's why Reya's laughing? – [Sophie] Yeah, I think so.
Reya thinks that's funny.
So, let's do some activities now.
This is the word shake, and it's spelled S-H-A-K-E.
So it starts with an S, which normally makes an(hisses) sound on its own, and an H, which normallymakes the ha sound on its own.
But when you put the S and the H together, it makes the shh sound.
Do you all wanna do that with me? Ready? Shhh.
Sophie, what are some other words that start with the shh sound? – [Sophie] Hm.
Words that start with the shh sound.
Shoe? – Yeah, that's a great one.
– [Sophie] Should? – Mm-hmm.
– [Sophie] And show? – Yeah, and also shhh whenyou're trying to tell somebody to be quiet.
– [Sophie] Ah, that'sa good one, Caroline.
– The word shake.
So here's a sentence.
Do you remember which word is shake? It start with S-H, canyou find it with me? I think it's the secondword in the sentence.
I'm going to tap it.
– Great, that's the word shake.
– And this is the word spin.
It starts with an S thatmakes the (hisses) sound and a P that makes the pa sound, and together they make the sp sound.
Do you all wanna say that with me? Sp.
And what are some wordsthat start with that sound, the blend sp? – [Sophie] Hm, I'mhearing someone say spots, and spiders.
Ooh, that's scary, spidersstart with the sp sound.
– Those are great words.
Spiders and spot and spin.
They spin and get dizzy, that's what the sentence says.
Can anyone spot the wordspin in this sentence? I think it's the second word.
That's the word spin.
– All right, one more sentence.
Simon says blank your hands.
Which word should we use? Let's see, I have twowords that you've seen.
– Simon says spin your hands? Or Simon says shake your hands? I think it's shake.
– Shake, you made the sentence.
Simon says shake your hands.
– That was fun.
Did you all have fun? So now do you all knowhow to play Simon says? So, I would love for youall to take it home with you and find somebody in yourfamily to play Simon says with, or maybe Sandy says, and you can teach them the rules.
What are the rules, Sophie, for this game? – [Sophie] Well, when somebody says, “Simon says do a little dance, ” we all do a little dance.
But if we don't say Simon says, if we don't hear those magic words, then we just stay still.
– That's great, and thatwould be so much fun if you all would like to play that game.
Let us know how it goes.
So now I think it's almosttime for us to wrap up, but if you would like to read more books and play more activitiesin Khan Academy Kids, you can ask your parents tohelp you download the app.
And before we leave I'd loveto just do one more fun thing.
Okay, let's all get up now and put your hands on top of your head.
Did you do it? – Yes, I think a lot ofpeople did it, Caroline.
– Did I say, Simon says? – No.
– Okay, let's try again.
Simon says put your handson top of your head.
– Yay! – That's fantastic.
All right, so, let'sthink about the things you can ask your family to do in this game of Simon says or Sandy says.
What kind of things do you think you're gonna ask them to do? – Oh, I'm hearing someone say, “Simon says wash your hands “really well.
“- Ooh, that is a good one.
Very important these days too.
So, thank you all forjoining us in “Circle Time.
” We're gonna say goodbye for now, but we'd love to see you againtomorrow at the same time.
So goodbye for now fromCaroline and Sophie and the Khan Academy Kids team.
Thank you so much for joining us.
Bye bye, have a great day.
